The authors describe a case of Hodgkin's disease (nodular sclerosis) that developed within 39 months into a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (high grade malignancy). They underline the singular pathologic findings, particularly the extranodal involvement, with disappearance of the first diagnosed tumor treated with chemotherapy only. On the basis of recent reports on this topic, an altered immunologic status linked probably to therapeutic agents is suggested in order to explain the occurrence of such a lesion.
